    I used to do it the same way but finally bought a Power Purge ....10 minutes start to finish but you need to do a lot of boats to pay for it.

    Tach's cool I guess but there doesn't appear to be a way to anchor it to the dash. Was just shoved/glued in. Leaning towards an OMC tach and filling the recall switch hole with a water pressure gauge?

    Mocked/mucked up the dash. Orig holes 'cept new one for wp gauge. Wish Id'a gone a 1/4" higher but oh well. Think I can still squeeze a toggle switch for the bilge pump in under. Hole used to be occupied by recall switch for the tach. But a simple man like me don't need no high dollar 14000 rpm tach that tells me how fast I just went ... (for sale, make offer ...)

    Happy Tday y'all! (Remember to thank the good lord, or whoever, for boats ...)

    Wiring ain't all that bad actually. Ignition, trim, and 'kill switch' are working as they should. Just need to get the tach figgered out.
